Top 5 Best Hosting Companies
so what are the top five best minecraft server hosting companies in 2022 well in this video we’re gonna go over the five best companies out there from best overall to the best budget option to the best option if you want to play other games in addition to minecraft all kind of on the same server it’s really really cool we have so many awesome hosts out there this year and all their links can be found in the description down below as well as the pinned comment under this video now those are affiliate links which means if you go purchase from those hosts we do a small commission at no additional cost to you that allows us to make these in-depth huge videos and truthfully we have affiliate partnerships with over 15 minecraft hosting companies at this point meaning that it’s almost impossible for us to make a list without some sort of an affiliate relationship.
so because of that we want to be upfront about it and tell you that there are affiliate partnerships with everyone mentioned on this list and it has no impact on the rankings so much so we try our best to be anonymous when testing things like support and every single server here is bought meaning we went through the purchase process to purchase these servers they are not given to us for free or anything like that so with that out of the way.
let’s go ahead and talk about the best overall minecraft server hosting company and that is apex minecraft hosting apex is number one on our list and that has continued for years at this point every year we give them a fair shake and every year they keep impressing us going above and beyond doing things like upgrading hardware upgrading support all of that stuff it’s absolutely incredible and first off let’s talk about pricing at apex you get a discount on your first month making a 2 gigabyte server 749 per month for the first month and then 9.99 per month after that on a four gigabyte server it’s at 14.99 for your first month and then 19.99 per month after that now pricing is subject to changes i do know a lot of hosting companies might increase this year due to inflation but it is something we’re gonna mention it right now.
best hosting companions-
this is the pricing at apex and all the pricing that you’re seeing in this video is what they are at the time i’m recording this video as far as server locations as apex you have 19 locations all around the world with seven in north america five in europe three in asia two in the middle east one in australia and one in south america apex is the only company on this list to have any middle eastern like support for server hosting which is absolutely incredible i love to see that they also basically have the entire world covered with their hosting at this point with 19 locations great stuff there however the reason apex is number one on the list is twofold one the hard way you get for that 9.99 per month price for a two gigabyte server and two their support as far as hardware goes they .
have an x series which gives you 15 gigabytes of ram and a ryzen 5800x cpu guaranteed and while that is the best guaranteed hardware that i’ve seen for server out there right now even their main servers are usually hosted on ryzen cpus and what’s great is you can see what kind of a service and what kind of hardware your server has because they have public hardware information literally just ask their support hey can you link me the hardware information page and they will show you what hardware their servers have right there it’s all listed what locations have what hardware.
and what their primary hardware is at each location and most of the time it is going to be an intel gaming cpu which means it’s an i7 or i9 intel cpu or it’s going to be a ryzen cpu which is great to see ryzen is great for running minecraft servers and apex delivers that via their hardware moving from there let’s talk about support apex has 24 7 chat support that is ready and willing to help you they also have sys admins available 24 7 as well on top of that their support super super fast as soon as you you know reach out to support they’re gonna give you a knowledge base try to help you that way and if it don’t you say hey i want to talk to a human and guess what within 30 seconds.
you will be connected to a human whether you’ve purchased a server in the past whether you haven’t you’re actually seeing us contact apex support and we’re going to be doing this on every single host here in this video we’re going to be contacting support while we’re talking about them and it’s 100 anonymous on all these hosts they have no clue who we are and you’re seeing the responses i mean very very quick with under 30 second response time about do they host rl craft servers which is great stuff we’d love to see that moving on from support though let’s talk about mod packs apex supports over 200 mod packs for one click installation that means you don’t have to worry about setting them up adding mods anything like that apex has it all taken care of and has one click installation of over 200 mod packs making them.
one of the higher ones but not the highest on this list in addition to these mod packs though apex does have something that makes them more unique which is built-in ready-to-go game modes from a vanilla plus survival meaning vanilla with plug-ins to skyblock to hunger games to factions all of these have one-click setups at apex if you want to start these servers and don’t want to have to go through configuring all the plugins getting the spawns all that stuff apex has all that covered if you just want to play skyblock with your friends you don’t have.
much any other reason to like go through configure everything you want apex to do it for you and they have that for like i said faction skyblock vanilla plus hunger games so many different game modes i mean there’s tons of them pvp they have all of these ready to go and set up with one click in addition to those over 200 mod packs next up is actually managing your server itself and apex is a custom multicraft back-end panel that when you log in will take you right to your servers however one of the things that makes apex top notch is their support and not only the support live chat but the support on the left hand side of the cpanel no matter what page you’re on there is a video ready to be clicked about that page for example on the main server page you can click on an array of different videos from everything on how to up yourself.
on the server to basically how to manage the server in an overview of the backend panel it is all there on the left hand side going to console there’s videos for you going to ftp there’s videos for you go into any part of the backend on apex and there’s a dedicated video for that page and things you might want to be able to do on that page it’s super super helpful and is one of the best things that apex has and one of the more unique things that they have on this list those ready-in-time tutorials that are right there if you have issues to help you learn and manage your server.
better is truly revolutionary in the minecraft server industry on top of that the panel is super easy to navigate and if you’re used to other multi-craft panels it’ll be very easy to learn and guess what it’s very easy to learn even if you’re not that’s one of the great things about apex is the ease of use of their custom multi-graph panel you just click on what you want on the left-hand side and it will take you right to where you want to go want to manage the console there it is want to see players there it is when i access ftp there it is it’s all available schedule task anything you want is right there and ready to go however i do feel like i need to mention knowledge bases this is something i’ve not mentioned in the past.
and what a knowledge base is is basically a support area where you can get articles videos things like that to help you manage your server and apex is a very extensive one with tons of video content i personally love video content obviously we make tons of videos here about how to do things in minecraft and we have seen between our text articles and our videos most people get help through the video content and that’s why i love the fact that apex has so much video content in their knowledge base honestly i would say it’s about 70 to 80 of the articles have video which is great for helping people who prefer videos like we said is something that a lot of people from our experience prefer video over text however i’m guessing most people never will even make it to the knowledge base on apex.
because of that just in time ready tutorials on the left-hand side and last but not least some other features that every apex server gets is going to be freesql a free sub domain for every server and automated backups all of these are now basically very transparent on a lot of the hosts out there but apex does have them and it’s nice to see so there you have it that’s the best overall server host mostly because of three things the bang for your buck with the price to the hardware amazing hardware for a very very reasonable price two the support support is absolutely incredible in apex with very quick live chat support times and very very helpful answers once you do get them.
and last but not least that back game multicraft panel that makes it super easy to use and if you’re new to minecraft servers for hosting which a lot of people are then you are going to have those tutorials right there on the left hand side to help you out however what if you’re on more of a budget well if that’s the case then that’s where gg servers comes in now keep in mind that by definition a budget server is going to be more susceptible to lag than a premium higher end server like you’re gonna get with someone like apex where they have super high-end hardware and are constantly upgrading and switching out hardware to get better and better performance on a budget server like you’ll find at gg servers you’re not gonna have that as much right you’re not gonna have as much of that lag
server to be able to run something like our aircraft a pretty demanding sort of mod pack as far as server management goes you have a basic multi-craft panel that is pretty well designed there’s a lot of cool features that may make things look a little complicated but when you look closer they actually add in stuff that you would normally do via ftp that can now be done via a
